Mr 6 is that jacket a bit too long for you? Or is it the angle?

Regardless love the elements in your outfit especially that tie

I think the main problem really is the broadness near the knot. If it were a bit slimmer there, I think it would look better. I'll have to experiment with tying it to get the right proportions.

Have you considered putting it on a diet or developing an exercise program to tighten the silk? Bearing in mind that it might just be thin silk with a big interlining that's making it look broad. 

 

 

(*too soon?)

Thanks! Just the angle. My phone tilted a bit more than normal and I didn't feel like taking another pic.

@Dennis Walter great combo today.  Really like the chambray shirt with that jacket... it stands out very nicely. The fit of the jacket seems perfect. 

 

Cheers, @Chulillo - funny you should mention the jacket´s fit. It is a bit tight in the chest, hence the slight crease to the right. Given it´s OTR, i am pretty happy with it.

Apart from the question of whether this tie clashes with the rest of the otherwise sober outfit, this one doesn´t really fit my taste, but that´s purely subjective. I am supporting your thoughts about pairing a sober suit with a "statement" tie, using this element to provide a focal point for the eye, @bienluienapris

Why shouldn´t it, @Gerry Nelson - it´s a good fit, regardless of sans tie ;-)

Lovely tie and overall fit, @Koala-T. Neither am i sold on the tie/ps combo, a plain one might have been the better choice imho.

Nice overall combo, especially liking the weave of the jacket, @Mr. Six. Is that a hopesack? I take it there´s little to no padding in the shoulder and maybe even a spalla camiccia? 

 

 

I am pretty sure to incent some wrath today - not that it would stop me...fuck yeah red pants and a plethora of designs: checks, houndstooth, paisleys, ...

Thanks Dennis for your support, i can understand that the tie is not to everybody taste.

 

Btw, i have to said, that i don't like every think in your differents outfit, but you wear it well and that goes well with you.

The suit is great @Coxsackie, but tie and shirt don't work with it. The shirt is too dark and the tie too light. Also, a bit of colour in the tie would help, IMO.

post #27568 of 43999

With respect @EliodA, I disagree. I like the relatively saturated shirt against the pallor of suit and tie. It's against the rules, I admit, but somehow it really appeals to me.

 

If there's any fault with today's fit in my own eyes, it's the shirt collar - a bit too elongated and pointy for the casual cut of the suit. But I really love that saturated blue. Maybe I'm just a wannabe gangsta.

I think a medium to dark brown grenadine or shantung would also look awesome with the suit and saturated blue shirt

In fact, I did start the day wearing a dark brown knit with this fit. It was good, but I swapped it out for the POW for the photoshoot and felt that there was an improvement.

 

But the dark brown certainly looked ok. However I think it might have been better anchored by adding a brown belt.

 

What it all boils down to with this suit, is that (in my eyes at least), it's quintessentially Neapolitan, and it demands a kind of louche sprezzatura in the accompanying details. Knits are good. Bluchers are good (normally, not be worn with suits, yes?) No belt. Every element slightly creased, not new, very relaxed, very comfortable. The dark brown knit tie just created too much contrast and so I went lower with the contrast. But damn, I love that more saturated blue in the shirt. It just screams "I am a made man".
